Howard Dean Is Not a One-Issue Candidate

August 08, 2003

Re "Democrats in All-Union Dress," Aug. 6: The AFL-CIO's family forum focused on domestic issues and the nine Democratic hopefuls, highlighting the subtle differences between the candidates. Why, then, did the article bring up that certain Democrats think that the party is being moved too far left by liberals such as Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-Ohio) and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean?

Dean is not a liberal by most accounts. He does value equal civil rights but he is also a supporter of states' rights and is a fiscal conservative desiring balanced budgets and decreased spending. Why he is made out to be a one-issue candidate (supposedly antiwar) when he is a multifaceted aspirant for the presidential nomination?
